  • n. Plural form of dynein.


Sorry, no etymologies found.


  • Thousands of motor protein molecules, called dyneins, are arranged along each doublet.

  • If you claim myosins, kinesins, and dyneins came about through a selected mutation process the argument by analogy inherent to the claim is that a stochastic process observed to allow beak adaptation in finches and the many observed examples of unicellular adaptation is capable of generating the examples cited.

    Analogy, How Scientifically Powerful is It?

  • Yes, and we still call dyneins, kinesins, and myosins "motors" despite the fact that none of them spin.

    Analogy, How Scientifically Powerful is It?

  • For example, we call myosins, kinesins, and dyneins "molecular motors," a lay person thinks of something spinning.

  • The key step in this process was that the dynein obtained from the host evolved into axonemal dyneins, attaching onto the microtubules and forming motile axonemes.

  • Functional analysis of human microtubule-based motor proteins, the kinesins and dyneins, in mitosis/cytokinesis using RNA interference.

  • For example, this molecule has been linked to impaired endosome and phagosome movement by disrupting dyneins

  • "This first step will lead to programs in which ideas about the detailed chemical kinetics and structural mechanics of individual dyneins can be tested as the source of the sliding and adhesive forces."

  • The doublets then reassociated, starting at their basal ends, until the dyneins were able to reinitiate sliding and repeat the cycle.

  • Specifically, dyneins generated sliding forces that caused a lone pair of doublets to split apart near their bottom ends, which were still firmly attached together.
